    Come experience the nightlife most never see at Secrest Arboretum’s annual Insect Night, a free event with family activities and a graduate student-led night walk. Among the stars: ghostly moths, burying beetles and (thanks to bioluminescence) coldly glittering fireflies. Plus hopefully only a few blood-sucking mosquitoes. This popular event will be held on Saturday, June 30th from 8 – 10:30PM. It’s free for kids of all ages and their families at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC), 1680 Madison Ave., Wooster.
